dependency-management-data now supports OSS Review Toolkit (ORT)

Featured image for sharing metadata for article

A couple of weeks ago, I received a feature request on dependency-management-data to add support for the OSS Review Toolkit (ORT).

I really appreciated this, as it introduced me to an awesome project I'd not yet heard of, as well as being something that the maintainers felt that it could be a really useful integration, which is always great!

I'd recommend checking them out - there's a little overlap with some of the work that dependency-management-data does, but I'd also say that they can work really well in unison. There's a good introduction to the project and how it came to be in the first half of Sustain OSS Podcast: Thomas Steenbergen & Josep Prat at FOSS Backstage 2023.

As of the last few releases of the dmd CLI, there's now support for the Software Bill of Materials (SBOM) formats that ORT produces, and as you can see in the Getting Started with OSS Review Toolkit's data cookbook, it's pretty straightforward to get started!

If you're using ORT and want a means to query your data in a different way, check out dependency-management-data.
